Honors Program


Honors Program

Students in the Commonwealth Honors Program must complete an honors thesis as part of the requirements to graduate as a Commonwealth Honors Scholar. All students in the program must enroll in two 1.5 credit seminars (IDS 600H Honors Seminar I and IDS 601H Honors Seminar II) to facilitate both imagining and completing this project. An honors directed study or departmental capstone course for writing the thesis is also required. All completed honors theses are viewable worldwide on the university's Digital Commons page. The following resources provide information about the Honors Program and its requirements, as well as specific information about the thesis process for students and thesis advisors.
